Make a holiday rental home or apartment in Peniche, Portugal your home away from home

The Leiria district lies in the centre of the Costa de Prata, and the attractive town of Peniche is situated in the south of this district, on a rocky peninsula that juts out into the Atlantic Ocean. The town was originally an island, and only joined the mainland in the 16th century. Peniche has long been an important fishing port, and is home of the some of the best seafood restaurants in the region, if not in the whole of Portugal, as well as some fantastic surfing beaches.

Things to do in Peniche, Portugal

Thanks to its coastal location, seafood is big business in Peniche, with a number of the town’s restaurants specialising in this type of cuisine. Tuna, crayfish and sardines are three of the most common items you will find on the menus, and the resulting dishes are a far cry from the tinned products found on supermarket shelves.

If you prefer to stick to self-catering, the local market if the best place to head to pick up some bargains. The fish here is extremely fresh and great value for money, and you can also pick up fruit, vegetables and lace products – the latter of which are another local speciality.

As with many Portuguese towns and villages, the focal point of Peniche is the town square. Here you will find the baroque Misericordia Church and the 16th century fortress, which has a dominating presence in such a small town. There are also plenty of shops, cafes and bars dotted around this area, so you will not find yourself short of things to do.

The beaches of the Costa de Prata are just a short distance away, with Baleal offering great surfing, and Cabo Carvoeiro the top choice for scenic views out over the ocean. Kite surfing and wind surfing are also popular on the beaches around Peniche, taking advantage of the powerful winds coming off the Atlantic. A good range of beach bars, cafes and shops can also be found around the beaches, especially at popular Baleal.

It is set in a quiet, beautifully maintained complex and the house itself is spacious, very tastefully furnished and well equipped. A perfect place to spend a holiday even out of season, we spent some very cosy evenings in front of the log burner in the comfortable lounge. We were very fortunate with the weather considering the time of year - temperatures reaching 22 degrees on some days. This allowed us to spend time exploring this fascinating area. Debbie's guidebook is really useful for ideas. Within about an hours drive there are numerous interesting towns, both on the coast and inland. We loved Nazare, where we watched fishermen mending their nets and women putting fish out to dry by the sea. Another favourite was Alcobaca, with its impressive monastery and excellent cafes selling delicious cakes in a beautiful setting. Obidos is a nearby town not to be missed. We enjoyed a wonderful meal in a restaurant there - unfortunately I can't remember its name but it is featured in Debbie's guidebook. Having never visted Lisbon, we were pleased to be told by Olga, the very helpful property manager, that we could get there by bus from Obidos. It was just an hours journey and well worth the trip. We had several hours to have lunch and explore the city. In all, we had a wonderful holiday and we would not hesitate in recommending this property to anyone looking for accommodation in the area.

We decided to holiday here after our Wedding on the Tuesday to give ourselves a little treat before returning to work. It exceeded our expectations! The villa was very well kept, clean and everything was easily accessible. The pool was just delightful and we spent most days lounging by the pool as it was heated and therefore very much needed in the warm weather we were lucky enough to experience. When we ventured out into the surrounding area we enjoyed dining at Cozinha D'el Rei, walking along the nearby sandy beach and lunch at the golf club. We particularly liked popping to the local butcher's and buying a huge selection of meat to cook back at the Villa on their built in BBQ. All in all, we experienced such a lovely time while staying in Villa Chloe and would definitely recommend it to anyone wishing for a relaxing break. Although we chose to relax, we noticed many activities very close by for those who choose to be slightly more active! We hope to return soon to spend a longer amount of time here. Thank you so much Sara and Richard for renting your beautiful property to us.

Great house, great views, great times. We did not see a lot of the traditional tourist sights (besides the surf), but it was still a great trip with seriously fun waves. We did travel to Nazare one day to witness some of the biggest surf ever ridden, which was stunning to see in person. Every meal we had in Portugal was delicious and very reasonably priced. We spent lots of time in Baleal and I would highly recommend the beaches there. We surfed out in front of the house also, but some days it was just too big (Hurricane Nicole swell), so we retreated to more protected breaks around Baleal. We also visited Obidos castle and the surrounding small enclosed fortress town, which we would highly recommend. This was the first time, but I firmly believe that it will not be the last time that we will rent this house. The location just cannot be beat and we cannot wait to return again soon. Great memories are built in houses like this.
